Prof. Dr. Thomas Dresselhaus

Head of Department

Thomas Dresselhaus
Reproduction, Fertility and Development
With a focus on the regulation of cell polarity, identity and signaling we are studying plant germline development and function, fertilization mechanisms and early seed development. 
Prof. Dr. Klaus Grasser
Chromatin, gene expression
and development
We study how transcript elongation and co-transcriptional processes in the chromatin context modulate plant developmental responses.
Sperm Red-green PD Dr. Stefanie Sprunck Steffi Sw-klein
Gamete Interaction and Cell Polarity
Using isolated gametes of wheat, maize and Arabidopsis we investigate how male and female gametes interact with each other during double fertilization. The molecular mechanisms of tip-growth are studied in pollen tubes and root hairs.

PD Dr. Mariana Mondragón-Palomino

Mondragon B W 90x90
Gene family evolution in plant speciation and development
We use experimental and bioinformatic approaches to investigate how gene and genomic duplication drive the morphological and functional diversification of plants.

Dr. Andrea Bleckmann

Andrea Sw
mRNA regulation, cell polarity and signaling, stem cells and embryogenesis

We study plant development, especially during plant reproduction and meristem maintenance. We focus on spatial-temporal mRNA translation and peptide signaling.

Dr. Karina van der Linde

Small maize proteins in development and pathogenicity
We aim to identify and study small maize proteins involved in tassel development and interaction of maize with the biotrophic pathogen Ustilago maydis.
